BTW this happened in San Jose CA.
You should be able to get your property released and may be entitled to restitution. Contact the DA that is handling the case to ask about your property - you can also ask the DA about any restitution. If that does not work, you may need to hire an attorney to seek recovery of your property and possible civil claims against the thieves and/or their parents.
It sounds like the District Attorneys office maybe holding the vehicle as evidence against the perpetrators of the crime. Contact the DA's office. If they are not cooperative, you may have to retain legal counsel and file a Motion in which to obtain possession of your property.
